We are still a year away from holding a baby in our arms. It seems like I talk about this ALL the TIME.
I certainly think about this all of the time. I occasionally look ahead to check due dates. I ALWAYS look ahead to due dates when stuck in an off cycle. During those 'off' cycle we are almost a year away from holding a baby in our arms.
What’s the problem this time?
Unsurprisingly it is cysts, yet surprisingly, it is anovulation. Yup. Lucky me, I am experiencing my first anovulatory cycle since I began keeping track of ovulation back in December 2011.
It figures that the cycle before we are to embark on IVF would be the cycle I would go all anovulatory. Why not? Nothing EVER goes as planned. Lucky, lucky me.
On the plus side: This is a lesson. A lesson in patience. I needed a reset. A snap back to reality.
This whole IVF thing is bound to be full of this sort of thing…. Surprises and setbacks.
Rainshower: Another delay. Another year.
Rainbow: I’m still in the game. I am not defeated. I am only delayed. I just have more time to appreciate how fortunate I am to be able to go ahead with IVF whenever it is meant to be.
